They mounted up to heaven; they went down to the depths;
their courage melted away in their evil plight;
27 they reeled and staggered like drunken men
and were at their wits’ end.a]
28 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
29 He made the storm be still,
and the waves of the sea were hushed.
30 Then they were glad that the watersb] were quiet,
and he brought them to their desired haven.
31 Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
32 Let them extol him in the congregation of the people,
and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
33 He turns rivers into a desert,
springs of water into thirsty ground,
34 a fruitful land into a salty waste,
because of the evil of its inhabitants.
35 He turns a desert into pools of water,
a parched land into springs of water.
36 And there he lets the hungry dwell,
and they establish a city to live in;
37 they sow fields and plant vineyards
and get a fruitful yield.
38 By his blessing they multiply greatly,
and he does not let their livestock diminish.
39 When they are diminished and brought low
through oppression, evil, and sorrow,
40 he pours contempt on princes
and makes them wander in trackless wastes;
41 but he raises up the needy out of affliction
and makes their families like flocks.
42 The upright see it and are glad,
and all wickedness shuts its mouth.
43 Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things;
let them consider the steadfast love of the Lord.

So grateful to Lyneta Smith author of Curtain Call for sponsoring the Pray Every Day Show! Lyneta Smith thought she was having a breakdown, when in fact, she was having a breakthrough. Read the inspiring story of how she stepped out of her stage-perfect Christian life and into the journey toward healing and finally seeing God as a good, loving father.

I’m also grateful to William Cocker Sr author of Prayers for the People for his sponsorship this month.
Prayers for the People is book is a collection of pastoral prayers (from worship, weddings, funerals, communion, and benedictions). When we pray together, we’re transformed. Pastor William B. Coker, Sr, prays for the people, lifting their needs before our Father who is able and willing to answer. Together we connect with God, concerned about others and their needs. Every petition is infused with an intimate knowledge of Scripture and hymns.
I’m also honored to have sponsorship from Jilliann Woods of the Be Bold Live free Podcast.
